40 Years of "Labyrinth"
A concert in honour of the highly esteemed musician, composer, and teacher Ross Daly, world-famous for his Musical Workshop Labyrinth, based in Choudetsi, Crete, on the occasion of his 40-year artistic presence in Greece. Originator of the term “contemporary modal music”, he succeeded in embracing and merging a vast folk music tradition from West Africa to Mongolia, being instrumental to the development of a new set of aesthetics built around the creative approach of these traditions rather than their static folklore reproduction.
We’ll have the opportunity to surrender ourselves to his melodic calls, along with those of many dear Greek and international musicians through a journey over Ross Daly’s collaborations from 1982 to the present. Crete and Vassilis Stavrakakis will be the starting point for this trip down memory lane, alongside a historic company of Cretan artists and all the way to Persia and Bijan Chemirani, whom we enjoyed last year at the Little Theatre of Ancient Epidaurus, plus a group of excellent musicians and Labyrinth students who continue this timeless journey of inspiration that knows no boundaries.
